Past and present farming experience:

Marissa grew up on her family’s dairy farm in west central Minnesota and since we got married we’ve been looking for farmland to raise our family on. We’d like to build a diversified farm with a handful of different enterprises such as honey, vegetables, pastured poultry, grass fed beef, and forested pigs. I’m currently taking Geoff Lawton’s permaculture design course and the Neversink Farm market gardening courses. We’re constantly studying about and learning from farmers like Joel Salatin and Richard Perkins who are regenerating their landscapes while earning a healthy profit.
